this that is evangelical both in religion and political and cultural. if you listen to cruz's father speaking at some of these evangelical churches, he has an us versus them view spiritually. there's a minority of real christians. not all christians. it's real christians who understand what's going on. they're going to benefit and the world and the country depends upon them. you take that out to the secular political realm and it's we americans, we don't even have to be in the majority. it's just we who don't like barack obama who want our guns who don't want obama care, we're the real americans. so it's not as if we have a culturally politically diverse country going on. and we go back and forth in between who wins and loses in policy fights, it's about what ask the real america. i think it has tremendously deep religious roots as well. >> i didn't start out the way i am politically. i moved from right to left. and i began even in college or younger i thought we do need social security. everybody can't end up on welfare because they didn't have enough real savings out of their work. you need a progr
would attack all sorts of religions. what we would get back, we expected hostility. what we got again and again. gentle sweetness. one of the thing that happens when you are an atheist, you get tweets. letters, i am so sorry religious people treat you'd so badly when you want to atheism. i think one of the reasons i want to atheism, religious people treated me so well. my dad was a christian. we were very, very close. there is a feeling love and security that can make you very happy with the life we have here. and sometimes the gentleness and the love itself is what gives you the confidence to maybe, not be, not be reaching for things. this is what i encounter all the time. the number of people that are aggressive and unpleasant in religion to me in my, life, is just about zero. maybe one or two. >> do you feel threatened by atheism? >> no. i can't stress this enough. a lot of my friend are atheists. just reflecting to day. had a lunch with a friend. an agnostic. >> you have seen priests go through crisis of faith. where priests have times where they're not so sure about the basic exi
, the justices will tackle the role of religion in the public square. they will hear arguments this week in the town of grace, new york versus galloway, the issue whether prayer at government meetings passes constitutional muster. it's argued the town is violating the separation of church and state by opening their council meetings with a christian prayer. jordan lawrence is with alliance freedom and reverend barry lind is representing galloway oig. good day to both you. reverend, the central focus in the case is the first amendment establishment clause. it says congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. so how to you argue in this case the establishment clause, basically the separation of church and state, that it's being violated in this case? >> unlike god save the honorable court, it's become a platitude, it's used so often it's from the much lost its spiritual significance. when you get down to what's going on in greece, new york, you're finding an overwhelming number, in factual but four of the prayers prayed in the
. the constitution says we establish no religion. and here we are jews and hindus and muslims, and all types of religion. and he says the democratic party promotes what's contrary to the word of god. the word of god tells us to heal the sick, to feed the hungry, to teach the children well. those are principles the democratic party believes in and puts money where our mouth is behind. i take offense at a lot of what he says. and ted cruz ought to get to the business of disavowing his father. stop using him as a surrogate. >> this is an example, krystal of how extreme has gone mainstream in the republican party. that's really what's troubling here. >> yeah. i think that's exactly right. when he delivers a line like send the president back to kenya, it's a huge applause line. it's not like he's out there on his own and no one's supporting him. as you pointed out, this guy has become a tea party darling. >> and how do you take that out of context? >> seems like that was pretty much what he meant in that moment. and so i think he is sort of the perfect embodiment of what the tea party actually be
exercise of worship and religion. the right to due process. the right to own property. we don't deny any of those rise to the formally incarcerated which is why this sticks out. >> president obama has said he'll sign a bill to restore voting rights to ex-felons, what some prominent republicans rand paul and rick santelorum. meantime millions of ex-convicts are barred from advocating for themselves. >> all right. that is a great piece. congratulations on it. a really timely one given the fact virginia gubernatorial race election is tomorrow. it shocked me that 5 -- almost 6 million americans are prohibit freddie vote due to felony restrictions. that breaks down so sharply along racial lines. one in 13 african-americans in the united states are disenfranchised in large part because of these felony restrictions -- restrictions on felons voting. how do we begin to -- how do red states or the states where this is happening begin to explain this, the reasoning, the rati rational behind denying the vote. >> i did hard to defend this. look, when you get out of jail, you've paid your debt. you do
of other religions besides christianity, who are they talking about? let's nail it? >> they mean people they see at meetings? how do they get to be we americans? >> they're free to say whatever delusional thing they want to say. but you know, talking about practical politics here, what i was going to say, ztoo, they boh live, not just in the land of political reality, but in the land where barack obama wins. he won the district in virginia where the congressman comes from. and they won the state of ohio. so they know that the american politics are diverse, ideologically, policy wise, generational. so they know, to be successful politicians have to operate within those confines, the people, ted cruz and others are self-selecting, self-seg gra gaiting and coming up with this success that only relies on people who think like they do. >> howard, i'm not going to quit on this point. i like immigrants, especially people who come here legally and play by the rules. he did that. his father's from cuba. he just got here from canada. and yet he gets to dictate to everybody on the north, everybody
in employment on the basis of race, color, sex, nationality, religion, disability or age. to hire people at your business in the united states of america, you cannot hang up a shingle that says, old people or jews may not apply. to add to that long list of categories, heading into this week, there were three who were not on board of that anti-discrimination legislation. for whatever reason at the start of this week, senators pryor, joe manchin, and bill nelson of florida have not said they supported this bill. but then, once senator harry reid said he would be putting that bill up for a vote between now and thanksgiving, all the three hold-out democratic senators decided they were going to get on board. so now, all the senators support that non-discrimination bill. and when new senator cory booker gets sworn in tomorrow, that means there will be 55 senators who will all vote yes on the anti-discrimination bill. and 55 out of a hundred, do the math, are the majority. but republicans are going to filibuster this bill, make it take 60 votes. they need five more votes. they need five more republican
is america does not have a right wing political problem. america has a right wing religion problem. and when they talk about losing our heritage and all the rest of it, this is a kind of religious delusion i talk about in my book "and god said, billy" which might as well be a biography of the cruz family. we've got to stop being so polite. we kind of dance around it and we don't say something very obvious. and that is the obama sabotage campaign has been driven by one group and one group only in this country. and that is white predominantly southern evangelicals who have a chip on their shoulder because he's black, because he's liberal, because he's come passionate and humane. he doesn't go along with their war on the poor, their war on women, their war on gay people. and they have it in for him. not for political reasons. they have it in for him because he doesn't fit in with their right wing agenda that comes straight out of their interpretation of the bible. the religious delusion i talk about in the book. that's it. that's the story and that's what the media has not been reporting. >> yo
jon cornyn a couple of months ago he said no. >> he's got religion on that. last week he said he would not endorse insurgents against his colleagues. designee has moved a little bit. ted cruz has. >> yeah. >> he's been burned. >> mike, thank you very much. coming up -- >> great to have mike on the set. you're trying to push him off and that makes me sad. >> the texans took a three score lead in the first half last night but then one scary moment changed the whole game. we'll show you what happened. ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪ [ male announcer ] the beautifully practical and practically beautiful cadillac srx. get the best offers of the season now. lease this 2014 srx for around $369 a month with premium care maintenance included. ♪ ♪ ♪ no two people have the same financial goals. pnc works with you to understand yours and help plan for your retirement. visit a branch or call now for your personal retirement review. i tr ied depend last weekend. it really made the difference between a m
